Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs Resources and Workshops: 

Each spring semester, the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs publishes guidelines and templates to use in preparing promotion dossiers. It is the responsibility of departments and candidates to ensure that the dossier is prepared according to the guidelines. The Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs also holds workshops each spring designed to provide information about the promotion process. The workshops explain the university’s review procedures and offer guidance on the promotion dossier. All candidates for promotion, chairs of committees, heads and directors are encouraged to attend the workshops in order to become familiar with dossier preparation requirements.
